Discussion items

PC update

Minutes (now in wiki!)

Discussion about agenda setting. Should it be a more open process. The PC Exec committee sets the agendas. Harry pointed out that we the PC Exec charter should be reviewed before appointing a committee. The charter will be looked at in 4 to 5 weeks. The PC Exec committee will continue as the "Agenda Setting Group" - The goal is that they will get an agenda for the PC Committee by Tuesday - two days before the meeting.

The LDP app was rejected for inclusion in Juniper release. Many were surprised. Is the LDP app a core part of the LSP? Reporting is considered to be a core part of an LSP. A decision was made that the LDP app will be included in the Kiwi release. 

Future: What are key parts of FOLIO? How should these be considered over time? How will these decisions be made. 

Jennifer Eustis (via chat): "If it is a core component of FOLIO, would it come at an extra hosting fee for those who have FOLIO hosted?"

"If LDP uses another server, I can see having to pay extra for that." ("Marmot Office")

Will there be transparent resources dedicated to the LDP app? Similar to the data import group, will there be a Project Manager for this app? — Jennifer Eustis.

Philip responded that there are a lot of issues of support and what can be maintained over time that need to be addressed as FOLIO grows.
